HOT TRAXX NIGHTCLUB - NIGHT CAMERA holds on this PACKED disco on Van Nuys Blvd.
MAURICE Pissed off you ain't been around -- JACK -- I been on vacation. MAURICE You are the foxiest bitch in ten countries. MAURICE (to Jack) I got you all set up at your booth. The WAITER takes off to the kitchen, Maurice walks onto the dance floor and greets three people; REED ROTHCHILD, 20s, tall and skinny, BECKY BARNETT, 20s, black girl in silk, BUCK SWOPE, 20s, black guy in cowboy gear.
MAURICE Just remember, Jack: I'm available and ready. MAURICE Clams on the half shell to Jack and Amber -- over there -- go!
CAMERA stays with Maurice, follows him to the bar area, where he shouts some orders to a WAITER.
CAMERA stays with Reed, Becky and Buck, does a 360 around them.
Moments later, the WAITER carrying clams on the half shell passes and CAMERA picks up with him, follows him to Jack's booth, where he presents them; WAITER Compliments of Maurice.
JACK Seven-Up, here -- The WAITER exits, CAMERA PANS with him for a moment, leading to a young girl wearing rollerskates, ROLLERGIRL (aged 18). CAMERA DOLLIES in on Jack, who at that moment, is approached by a figure entering FRAME.
Jack turns his head, looks across the dance floor and sees this kid cleaning the table. He looks up, catches Jack looking back at him, then turns away, disappears into a back room.
(Note: In the text Eddie Adams will be referred to as Dirk Diggler.) ANGLE, JACK'S TABLE.
AMBER (to Rollergirl) Did you call that girl today? AMBER If you don't do it tomorrow, then it's the weekend and you'll never be able to get in to see her -- ROLLERGIRL OK. CAMERA moves into a CU -- blending to SLOW MOTION (40fps) for a moment.
